Beginning the search for bindings for my wider skis (78 in the waist). Which bindings COME WITH wide brakes?

Salomon makes a 912 ti with qa brake that fits over any fat ski. Not sure who else does...
Looking for fat skis, let me know if you'r einterested in some pocket rockets w/ the above mentioned binders.

A lot of brakes can be bent to accomodate wider skis. I just picked up a pair of Chubbs and put Look bindings on them.

Here the binding:

Ryan You can buy a wide brake for Salomon bindings.I mounted the 912 on my Chubbs with the wide brake.
Sugar I think your going to like the Chubbs.I know I like mine.They are a blast in the afternoon spring mush, It's sorta like water skiing.

Atomic makes an "EX" version of their Xentrix 412 and 614 bindings. Same binding but with wider brake. That is what I used when I bought my 10.EX skis (84 mm waist).

Some Rossi Freeride bindings come stock with a wide brake.

Atomic has bindings with wide brakes.
Either the Xentrix 4.12 or 6.14 are available in the following widths;
Normal - up to 72mm - for most mid fats.
EX - 88mm - for R:EX and Stomp
Sugar Daddy - 99mm - for Sugar Daddy
Big Daddy - 107mm - for Big Daddy

78mm , thats just on the line between bending out and getting fat brakes. On my Mtn. Xs I went for the fat brakes on a pair of Rossi Axial 120s. Don't think that any bindings come with brakes that would fit a 78mm without bending.

The only problem I had with fat brakes is that it took 6 months to get them ( ordered end of season)but it worked out fine as they didn't charge me as it took so long.

I mounted Salomon 850ti bindings on my G4s, with the wide brakes (and no lifters). This has been a really good, lightweight setup for a wider, heavier ski- although the G4 really isn't that hefty in a 178.

Salomon makes wide brakes, but, like Sugar said, you can bend the ones you have. I have done this in the past and had no problems.

Even bindings with wide brakes may not be what your looking for. If they don't fit stock, and are close, save some money and time by bending them. Its just a small piece of metal rod.
